Netflix is giving people a taste of its original movies and TV series, even if they don't have a subscription. By heading to netflix.com/watch-free, people can take in a handful of popular titles -- including Stranger Things, Bird Box, Murder Mystery, When They See Us and others -- for free without signing up for a Netflix account.
For TV series, you only get the first episode, but movies are available in full. At the end of each, you get a message encouraging you to sign up for Netflix.
"Netflix is the premiere destination for all your entertainment needs. But don't take our word for it – check out some of our favorite movies and TV shows, absolutely free," reads a message greeting people at the top of the watch free section. The company also notes that the movies and show available for free may change from time to time.
